Still a little obsessed with my latest project – Beach Clean Art, I have set this oh-so-cute square vase filled with monbretia in front of one of my in-progress paintings and surrounded it with bits and pieces I have collected from the beach whilst doing my bit for the 2 Minute Beach Clean.
using these beach clean pieces for a backdrop again, this time complete with beach clean ‘Cleopatra’
and Tate Modern brooch
Tate Modern is selling these as a fund raiser to celebrate the new extension – exciting times, I hope to visit soon.
I have been developing the background canvases I showed you in this post, with a bit of stamping
A very roughly drawn ammonite (with a pencil) on the back of a polystryrene pizza packing disc has created some pretty good stamps I think.
I’ve been playing with bits of beach-clean to see which will make the finished piece.
These pieces are just laid on with no fixings whilst I decide – fixing everything securely is what takes the time – that is the work – all else is play.
I like the idea of fixing the smaller canvas to the larger, creating a little shelf – ooo i am having fun!
What do you think – does it work?
